Is your drinking water making you sick?
Where you live has a lot of effect on how you may answer that question. If you live in a major city that has a well-funded water system your tap water is most likely safe. However, if you live in a rural area or get your water from a water system that is not well funded or is mismanaged the tap water in your home may not be safe to drink.
Point-of-Use Water Treatment Systems Market worth 24.58 Billion USD by 2020.
Global bottled water sales have increased dramatically over the past several decades, reaching a valuation of around $60 billion.
The public dose not trust municipal water systems. The water from your kitchen sink tap should be safe to drink, regardless of where you live in the U.S.
Clean Water Tank Project was formed in 2008 to bring a light to this problem. Soon to be incorporated as a 501 (c) 3. We are committed to the education of water system management. As our nations water systems grow and our water storage tanks age proper maitenance become more and more important. There are no EPA rules that require water storage tanks to be inspected or cleaned.The result is that large well funded municipal water systems do a great job maintaining their systems Unfortunately, thousands of smaller systems ignore maintenance procedures that are not required by law.
In addition to the education of water system management The Clean Water Tank Project is committed to educating law makers and the general public on this important issue. We are currently attacking this problem with an informational blog, printed materials, video productions and training. We are looking for college interns who will help bring this organization to life. We seek candidates that can help us produce award-winning video productions, websites, and social media channels.
Make a difference. Create your own place in the world and help us do this important work. We plan to hire our first program manager and all other paid positions from candidates that successfully complete our intern program.
